We just completed a special project in the San Francisco office today … putting together back-to-school kits consisting of pens, pencils, highlighters, post-its, and binders for 6th graders at Visitacion Valley Middle School.

Special project today in the San Francisco office ... fulfilling back to school kits for 6th graders at Visitacion Valley Middle School.

It is one of the many ways tries to give back to the various communities we serve, online – and off.

We wish the students of Visitacion Valley Middle School a wonderful and productive school year. Who knows, maybe one of them might use one of these pens to start capturing their own family history. It is never too young to start!

About Kristie Wells

Kristie is Ancestry's Head of Global Social Media and Online Support Community and is responsible for developing and managing the company's social media and social business offerings worldwide. She works with a team of community managers, genealogists and social content developers to help educate Ancestry's existing customers, inspire new family historians and expand awareness into new social audiences and communities. She has a deep love of family history and is currently trying to break through the brick wall of her Christophier line (that was supposedly French and Catalan, but it seems was really the Christopher's from Iowa) and to one day prove where the heck William Wells of Southhold, NY (b. 1608) was really born.



It is nice to see that does give back to the community, I love volunteering. And it’s true – never too young to start! I started when I was 11, and now I am 17! 🙂

Sorry Ancestry for the comments from people lime the above ” rose Cain” but we will have to consider the source especially since she can’t even spell right ( site, not sight). Keep doing goodness. Love when giving back, especially to the children.
